Robert Wise Wise was the president of the Directors Guild of America from 1971 to 1975 and the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences from 1984 through 1987. Early years[edit] Early career[edit] Wise began his movie career at RKO as a sound and music editor. In the 1930s, RKO was a small, budget-minded studio with "a strong work ethic" and "willingness to take artistic risks", which was fortunate for a newcomer to Hollywood such as Wise.[9] At RKO, Wise became an assistant to T.K. As Wise gained experience, he became more interested in editing film content, rather than sound, and went to work for RKO film editor William "Billy" Hamilton.[12] Wise's first film as Hamilton's assistant was Alfred Santell's Winterset (1936). At RKO, Wise worked with Orson Welles on Citizen Kane (1941) and was nominated for the Academy Award for Film Editing.[8] Wise was the film's last living crew member.[15] Director and producer[edit] Wise's films often included lessons on racial tolerance.

Stanley Kubrick Selbstporträt von Stanley Kubrick, Ende der 1940er Jahre Stanley Kubrick (* 26. Juli 1928 in New York City; † 7. März 1999 im Childwickbury Manor bei London) war ein US-amerikanischer Regisseur, Produzent und Drehbuchautor. Seine Filme werden vor allem für ihre tiefe intellektuelle Symbolik und ihre technische Perfektion gelobt. Die Hauptthemen seiner Filme sind die Unnahbarkeit der Realität und das Scheitern der Menschlichkeit, ausgedrückt durch das einfache Akzeptieren, das Ignorieren oder das Ringen der Protagonisten mit ihren dunklen, inneren Kräften – auch ihren Trieben. Anfänge und Durchbruch[Bearbeiten] Als Fotograf war er mit investigativer Berichterstattung vertraut; dementsprechend inszenierte er 1950 seinen ersten Dokumentarfilm Day of the Fight, eine, obwohl nur 16 Minuten lange, damals aufsehenerregende Studie über individuelle Leistungen im Boxring.
